Statement of faith

We believe in one God [Deut. 6:4] who is the all-powerful, all-knowing and all present Creator, eternally existing in three persons; God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. [Matt. 6:9; 2Cor. 1:3; John 8:58; John 1:1, 18; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Cor. 2:10-11]

We believe the Bible is the fully inspired, inerrant Word of God and that it has authority over our lives. [2Tim. 3:16; 1 Pet. 1:21]

We believe in the full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ and that He is God's Son. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, performed miracles and led a sinless life. He made atonement for the sins of the world by dying on the cross. He conquered death three days later, appeared before many witnesses and later ascended to Heaven. Jesus Christ will someday return to the earth, judge the world and establish his kingdom forever. [Phil. 2:6-7; John 5:16-27; Heb. 4:15; 1John 2:2; John 20; 1Cor. 15:4-6; Acts 1; Is. 9:7; Luke 1:33; Rev. 5:9]

We believe every person is created in the image of God.[Gen. 1:26-27]

We believe that all have sinned and are, as a consequence, eternally separated from and condemned by God. Out of love and mercy, God gave up His own Son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice, to redeem mankind from the bondage and penalty of sin. We believe salvation is exclusively obtained from believing and trusting in the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Salvation is a free gift of God's grace. Those who receive the gift of salvation will dwell eternally with God. [Rom. 3:23; Eph. 2:1-3; 1Pet. 3:18; Acts 4:12; Eph. 2:8]

We believe all those that have put their trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior make up the Church, the unified body of Christ. The Mission of the Church is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples of all nations. [Rom. 12:5; Matt. 28:19]

History

In 2003, Sylvia Slifko, an executive director of a Pregnancy Center outside Akron, Ohio, recognized the need to see more abortion minded women. God laid the abortion-minded woman on Sylvia's heart, and she felt called to GO to them and share life-affirming options that result in renewed purpose and hope. After much prayer, she felt God directing her to create a mobile ultrasound unit where women could view their unborn children. What started out as a used recreational vehicle, became ICU Mobile's first mobile unit, actually the first one in the country. It took nine months for the first ICU Mobile to develop, a period of time not surprising to the founder. The retrofitted RV provided these women with free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, all while sharing the hope found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

After hearing of the success of this new idea in Akron, a Pro life publication published the story, which sparked a wave of pregnancy centers wanting to learn the details. Initially, a small booklet was published regarding information on a going mobile. God encouraged Sylvia to expand the ministry and work with centers that were considering mobile. In 2009, Image Clear Ultrasound, Inc was launched as a non-profit working with pregnancy centers all over the country in their endeavor to go mobile. ICU Mobile also provides training on mobile medical ministry and on- going support and training regarding how to serve women, save lives and share Christ with excellence!

What started as a single retrofitted unit has grown into a national fleet of mobile medical units, known as His "Fleet for Little Feet". ICU Mobile is serving thousands of women annually, standing at the crossroads of decision. A humble beginning has turned into thousands of babies saved by the miracle of ultrasound, and hundreds of women changed and transformed by the power of the Gospel.
